I know this was all over Twitter, but thank you Stay Back Man! If it wasn’t for your heroics, some crazy person might have picked up that ball and negated Brandon Belt‘s RBI double to score Angel Pagan. Every San Francisco Giants fan owes you a beer for letting this game continue and allowing the Giants to #BeatLA.

I don’t know if you all read the articles below but, clearly Stay Back Man knows the rules of baseball.

Baseball Etiquette 101

Baseball Etiquette 102

"Never, ever, EVER interfere in the play of game. Don’t stick your glove, hat, or hand over the wall into the field to grab a ball. San Francisco fans are horrible about this. It’s an embarrassment to the team, the fans, and the city. Don’t be Steve Bartman. Until that ball is CLEARLY out of play, don’t go near it."

Here is the Mlb.com video of stay back man and fans not interfering with the ball.
